Abstract

Rhinosporidiosis is a rare, chronic, granulomatous infection of the mucous membranes that mainly involves the nose and nasopharynx; it occasionally involves the pharynx, conjunctiva, larynx, trachea and, rarely, the skin. The characteristic clinical features of this disease...

Nonarytenoid laryngeal granulomas

September 27, 2018  |  Marissa Evarts, DO; Jonathan Romak, MD; Robert T. Sataloff, MD, DMA, FACS

Contact and postintubation granulomas rarely are located on the middle third or anterior portion of the vocal folds, with few reported in the literature.

Granuloma formation secondary to silicone injection for soft-tissue augmentation in facial cosmetics: Mechanisms and literature review

January 14, 2018  |  Leo L. Wang, MS; William W. Thomas, MD; Oren Friedman, MD

Abstract

The use of injectable fillers is increasingly popular as an alternative to surgery for facial cosmetic applications. In this regard, silicone is a versatile biomaterial filler that has been used for these purposes, but its use warrants further investigation, especially since it...

A case of squamous cell carcinoma of the nasal cavity in a patient with granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener granulomatosis)

January 14, 2018  |  Edward C. Kuan, MD, MBA; Kevin A. Peng, MD; Lyndon O. Gonzalez, MD; Joel A. Sercarz, MD

Abstract

We report a rare case of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the nasal cavity arising in a patient with granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA). The patient was a 35-year-old man who had been diagnosed 15 years earlier with GPA and treated medically for sinonasal, pulmonary, and...

Silicone granuloma formation associated with dermal injection

Silicone fillers, for all their advantages, are associated with significant long-term risks.

Lobular capillary hemangioma (pyogenic granuloma) of the oral cavity

The most common site is the anterior maxillary gingiva, while posterior, mandibular, and facial gingiva may also be affected.

Atypical presentation of vocal fold granulomas

April 30, 2017  |  Raj B. Patel, MD; Aaron Jaworek, MD; Robert T. Sataloff, MD, DMA, FACS

Vocal fold granulomas usually form near the vocal process or on the mucosa covering the medial surface of the arytenoid cartilage. These lesions are not true granulomas and consist of fibroblasts, collagen, leukocytes, and proliferating capillaries.

Vocal fold granulomas

August 21, 2016  |  Helen Lesser, BS; Amy Rutt, DO; Robert T. Sataloff, MD, DMA, FACS

Occasionally, even after excellent reflux control, surgical removal and steroid injection into the base of the granulomas, application of mitomycin C, and voice therapy, patients develop recurrent granulomas.

Nonsurgical options to treat giant-cell tumors of the head and neck: A case report and brief review of the literature

July 18, 2016  |  Allison N. Rasband-Lindquist, MD; Jonathan D. Lindquist, MD; Christopher G. Larsen, MD; Aaron Thiessen, MD; Douglas Girod, MD

Abstract

Central giant-cell granulomas (CGCGs) are relatively uncommon. When they do occur, they typically arise in the mandible and maxilla. Some lesions are more destructive than others, and the destructive subtype has a tendency to recur. Unfortunately, there is no reproducible way...

Rhinosporidiosis

March 16, 2016  |  Lester D. Thompson, MD

Surgical treatment is the mainstay of therapy for rhinosporidiosis, but there is a 10% recurrence rate.

Bilateral intubation granulomas

March 16, 2016  |  Wen-Sen Lai, MD; Yuan-Yung Lin, MD; Yueng-Hsiang Chu, MD, PhD; Jih-Chin Lee, MD

Granulomas typically appear as pale, pedunculated masses, usually found on the posterior one-third of the vocal folds overlying the vocal process of the arytenoid cartilage.

September 21, 2015  |  Masaru Kojima, MD, PhD; Yoshimasa Nakazato, MD, PhD; Kaoru Hirabayashi, MD, PhD; Nobuhide Masawa, MD, PhD; Naoya Nakamura, MD, PhD

Abstract

We report 2 rare cases of IgG4-related plasma cell granuloma of the maxillary sinus. Histologically, both lesions were characterized by severe lymphoplasmacytic infiltration. In 1 case, fibrous sclerosis and obliterative arteritis were observed. Immunohistochemical study...
